All About Hygge

Hygge is the new ‘it’ theme in events. This is definitely one to watch for 2017 and we can’t wait to include it in  our upcoming Liverpool Food, Drink & Lifestyle Spring Festival.

Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah)- is the Danish word for a feeling or simplistic mood that stems from genuine pleasure in making ordinary, simple moments more center, beautiful & important day to day. Whether it’s making a hot chocolate, knitting a blanket or lighting a candle every evening. Hygge is being aware of a good moment whether it’s simple or special.

Some refer to hygge as an “art of creating intimacy”. While there’s no translation to the  English language, several ideas can be used interchangeably to describe the idea of hygge such as cosiness, happiness, security, comfort, reassurance, kinship, and simplicity.

According to ;

“Danes created hygge because they were trying to survive boredom, cold, dark and sameness and the undefinable feeling of Hygge was a way for them to find moments to celebrate or acknowledge and to break up the day, months or years. With so many cold, dark, days, the simple act of a candle glowing with a cup of coffee in the morning or a home cooked evening meal with friends can make a huge difference to one’s spirit.”

Hygge is about being present enough to recognise and acknowledge an act, moment or feeling when the ordinary feels extraordinary.
